Clarins to launch Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert

Published: 2016-12-20 by Marina Milojević in Bath & body

March sees the launch of Clarins’s new anti-cellulite treatment. The Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert is an innovative solution for visibly smoother, firmer, and better toned skin. The Body Fit treatment is designed in response to the latest discovery of the Clarins Research Center by which three different types of cells are responsible for formation of excessive fatty tissue and cellulite. The Body Fit is the only anti-cellulite product that targets three different types of fat cells and optimizes their function to prevent and reduce the formation of cellulite, tighten the skin, and make it appear smoother and even.

Cellulite is caused by subcutaneous fat – the type of fat that is trapped under the skin. The irregular appearance of the skin affected by cellulite is actually created by connective tissues that bond the skin to the underlying muscle, with fat cells trapped in the middle. Traditional cellulite-specific treatments that target fat storing cells can help minimize the look of dimpled skin, but they can’t do anything about the fat trapped beneath. Clarins’s new Body Fit treatment, on the other hand, targets three different types of fat cells: fat storing cells, fat burning cells, and cells responsible for forming collagen fibrils within the adipose tissue.

In 2013, Clarins’s research clarified that the skin is made up of a number of tissues, amongst them adipose tissue made of fat cells. When the fat-storing capacity of fat cells gets too high, these cells increase in number and size due to the excess of lipids. The result is a visible deformation on the surface of the skin, known as cellulite.


Clarins’s previous research has revealed the role of progenitor cells - they play a vital part in the renewal of adipose tissue, and are responsible for the expansion of this tissue and the formation of cellulite. Now, the findings extend to the function of fat burning fat cells, which  are constantly burning fat, in order to ensure a sufficient supply of energy for the body. When the amount of energy released from the fat is in balance with body’s energy consumption, fat cells won’t have anything to store or accumulate, as the fat is released into energy that the body uses to maintain its metabolism. In cases where the energy generated exceeds the consumption, the amount of fat stored in fat cells increases and collagen fibrils, or cellulite threads, within the adipose tissue start to form.

The innovative Clarins Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert targets all three different types of fat cells. It boosts fat-storing capacity of the cells, activates the fat burn, and impacts the production of collagen fibrils. In addition to caffeine, which tightens and provides antioxidants to the skin when applied topically, the Body Fit treatment is also formulated with quince leaf extracts. This botanical ingredient is known to even out the skin’s texture and make it appear smoother. For the best results, don’t forget to maintain the elasticity and hydration of your skin by taking enough water, eating healthy, and engaging in a regular physical activity.
